The rest of the trip to Singapore was a blur. We had been to Singapore quite a few times when we lived in Malaysia, but being back there after our time in India, I can tell you we were seeing Singapore again like a long lost friend. It was wonderful to be driving around in streets with no cows, and no potholes.....and well it was just nice to be in a different scene. We had a wonderfully funny cab driver who fell in love with John and told us what a beautiful man he was! He told us John was as handsome as Tom Jones and Englebert Humperdink (sp) put together, lol I agreed! He also commented that John had amazing "waterproof hair".. heehee, a new phrase that I had not heard before but will never forget. We did of course the touristy things like the duck boat tour (Bruce insisted), where we saw the most amazing views of "the ship stuck on the hotel" and the Singapore zoo and of course we hit Clark Quay one evening and to John's delight we had hot wings at the first "Hooters" in Asia. We also did a little bit of shopping, not near enough as I had planned (I came down with a wicked cough/flu bug right after Bruce's surgery) but a little shopping none the less. Yikes! Can't believe I almost forgot to mention the really cool "Art of the Brick" Leggo exhibit. By Nathan Sawaya?....(forgot his last name) anywhere pics will be shown below. Tres cool. Scratch that, I just reviewed the pics, and that will be a post all on it's own. It was FABULOUS.
It's been a full week since the surgery and the improvement in speech for Bruce has been like night and day. He still struggles a bit as he is using a muscle that he never had use of before, but now it's all about showing him how to use it, the difference is, he CAN now. He can say "L" sounds now too, and for the first time in his life he was able to tell me that he was "thirsty"....he would always tell me he was "hungry" when he wanted something to drink. Happy does not describe.
That's all for now folks, till next time.
